ORIGINAL FRENCH ARTICLE: Merci à Jacques Coubard, grand journaliste et grand communiste

Jacques Coubard helped us in 2004 to found L’Humanité in English, an abbreviated version in English of L’Humanité, which appears only on the web, and later, L’Humanité porusski, an abbreviated version in Russian of l"Humanité, also only on the web.
He thus made a major contribution toward making l’Humanité better known in the entire world. In fact, our translations from l’Humanité in English and Russian are often reprinted in union or political publications influential in the English- and Russian-speaking worlds.
We are much beholden to Jacques for his support and advice, always offered with affection, reserve and discretion. Jacques Coubard remains forever in our minds and hearts - a great journalist and a great communist.
Hervé Fuyet, coordinator of L’Humanité in English and L’Humanité porusski
